Thompson teachers rally to protest inadequate education funding increases

July 31, 1958 – June 5, 2018


After a lengthy battle with Cancer, Scot received his wings with his Wife Dallas and family by his side. Scot was predeceased by his Mother Keitha Mifflin (Nee Peters) and Father Jack Mifflin. He leaves his memories to his Wife Dallas, Step son’s Chris (Jessica) and Paul. Grandchildren: Gage (Karlene), Tyler, Keagan, Bella, Jayden and Caleb. Sister: Linda, Brothers: Ron (Sandra), Chris (Shelly), Brad (Jackie), Rick (Louise), Terry. Father in law: Verghl Torgerson, Special Aunt: Marilyn, as well as numerous Cousins, Nieces and Nephews and many close Friends. As per Scot’s request, cremation has taken place. A come and go Celebration of Life was held on June 8, 2018 at the MMWT at 4 Nelson Road, from 1:00 to 3:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, Donations may be made to the Northern Health Foundation in care of the Northern Health Region in memory of Scot Mifflin. All donations will be used to enhance cancer care services at Thompson General Hospital.

On June 9 a large group of local educators and union representatives got together to air their many grievances with the Manitoba government’s approach to funding public education. While the group first gathered at the United Steelworkers Local 6166 union hall around 10 a.m., they eventually marched over to MacLean Park later that morning, carrying signs and repeating the chant “kids not cuts.” According to the handful of people who spoke publicly during this rally, much of their ire with the province stems from the fact that funding increases have fallen short of the rate of inflation for two straight years. Because certain essential resources aren’t in place anymore, teachers’ ability to teach and their students’ capacity to learn is limited, claims Carolyn Halcrow, an R.D. Parker Collegiate English teacher. “I know there’s not a teacher or staff member here, or school in this town, that has not fed hungry kids,” she said. “Teachers pick up the bills personally for supplies for those who need them and schools are asked to do more with fewer dollars.” Halcrow went on to say that while district budgets for salaries and school supplies are shrinking, class sizes are getting bigger, which means that students with special needs run the risk of being lost in the shuffle. “We’ve had in Thompson, and elsewhere in Manitoba, an influx of immigration,” she said. “What does that mean in terms of education? It means that schools have a population of learners

While he did not attend the rally, Thompson MLA Kelly Bindle used his latest MLA Report column on June 8 to address many of the criticisms levelled against the Progressive Conservative government.

vesting more in education than ever invested before in Manitoba” and that many of these grievances are the result of their opponents in the NDP spreading “fake news.” “We are investing $1.323 billion in public school divisions for 2018−19 and boosting funding for the Intensive Newcomers Support Contingency from $60,000 to $100,000,” he wrote. “These investments provide strong support for our school divisions with an increase of $6.6 million, and include a 7.4 per cent increase − amounting to a hike of $2.295 million – for [the] Mystery Lake School Division.” While Pellizzaro is aware of these increases, she said the government still isn’t taking certain variables into account. “They may say they increased spending. They did, but [it is] very tiny,” she said in a June 8 interview with the Thompson Citizen. “It doesn’t cover inflation, it doesn’t cover rising costs. Look at the hydro in Thompson. Our hydro’s high. The schools have to cover the hydro.” Winnipeg teachers held a similar rally on May 25, protesting the provincial government’s two-year wage freeze on public sector workers and their move to eliminate individual school districts negotiating their teachers’ salaries and moving to province-wide collective bargaining instead. Norm Gould, Manitoba Teachers’ Society (MTS) president, said centralized collective bargaining

doesn’t work in a province like Manitoba, where each school district has unique needs. “The priorities of a Thompson teacher are quite different than the priorities of those in Winnipeg, for example, and those teaching out in Virden as well,” he said. “There are commonalities but there’s a lot of differences in the regions and that’s how it’s addressed during the bargaining.” However, Manitoba Minister of Education and Training Ian Wishart said this new province-wide model will work to teachers’ benefit, since it streamlines the more than 38 bargaining units that currently negotiate individually. “We’re the last province to do anything even remotely close to that number,” he said in a May 18 interview with the Citizen. “A lot of time is put into that, doing the same thing 38 times, which is not productive and it’s a cost to government to do that. We think that it’ll be a win-win for everybody on that, both for the government and the teachers themselves.” While many of these issues may have to be resolved either through continued lobbying or at the ballot box in 2020, Gould said Manitoba unions are currently taking the Tory government to court over their imposed two-year wage freeze, which many union leaders view as infringing their right to bargain collectively. Gould said the judge in this case should hand down a verdict sometime in July.

Not like missing woman to be gone without letting family know, her daughter says Dianne Mae Bignell, 60, last seen May 17



The daughter of a 60-year-old Thompson woman missing since May 17 says it isn’t like her mother to be out of touch for so long and is asking people in Thompson to check their surroundings for anything that might help to locate Dianne Mae Bignell. “All we are asking is that the people of Thompson take a look around their yards and home to

see if there is anything that may point to our mother’s whereabouts,” said Dianne’s daughter Clara. “She likes to hang around downtown Thompson. Every little bit of information helps. She is an elder and diabetic, she may not be thinking clearly. We need her to come home.” Dianne Bignell was last seen by one of her nieces on the morning of May 17 – her birthday – on Hemlock Crescent in the Juni-

per area. Clara says her mother wears glasses and has shoulder-length hair, more grey than black. She is Indigenous, 5’4” tall with a heavy build and was last seen wearing a dark jacket, grey shoes and royal blue pants with two stripes down the side. She walks with a limp. It is unlikely that Dianne could have gone very far on foot, says her daughter. “She has bad knees and she had a sore hip,” Clara

Woman arrested for selling cocaine at Cross Lake Inn

Cross Lake RCMP seized eight grams of cocaine and cash at the Cross Lake Inn June 1 after receiving a tip about people believed to be selling drugs. Police attended the location around 4:15 p.m. and arrested 27-year-old Tessa Joy Monias, who was remanded into custody on charges of possessing a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking and possessing property obtained by crime. Monias was scheduled to appear in provincial court in Thompson June 4. Cross Lake RCMP continue their investigation.

said. Dianne would always let her brother Clifford, with whom she shares an apartment, know if she wasn’t going to return home, her daughter says. “It’s not like her to be gone this long,” said Clara. “Every time she’d leave she’d always phone and let my uncle know she was OK if she didn’t come home at night. She’d be home about nine if not earlier.” Clara says her family has heard that Dianne had been seen in the company of a man who is now in Selkirk. “I haven’t even located him,” Clara said. “I haven’t got a chance to talk to him. A lot of people say she was seen with him.” And while Clara had to leave Thompson June 7 to return to her home in Brandon and her children after two-and-a-half weeks of daily searching from morning to nightfall, Dianne has other family members in Thompson, including her brother and nieces as well as a sister in Thicket Portage and they are determined to find Dianne and will continue to organize searches out of their headquarters at the Miner Room in the Burntwood Hotel.

Sixty-year-old Dianne Mae Bignell of Thompson has been missing since May 17 and her family has been searching the city for her. “The searches will be going on,” Clara says. “We’re not going to give up. We’re going to bring my mom home one way or another.” She asks that people of Thompson keep their eyes open when they are out and

Midget King Miners bring home provincial Powwow celebrates UCN graduates gold for the second time in three years

The midget AA Thompson King Miners were in Sagkeeng, Manitoba March 2–4 for this year’s provincial hockey tournament, and walked away from the contest with the top prize in their hands. The team started off the weekend having something to prove after a one-sided victory over the Peguis Midgets on Friday. Chase Gurniak, Cody Hale and Kale Mayor all nabbed two goals a piece for the King Miners, while Riley Locke, Ryan Monias, Drayden Spence, Mathew Lamontagne, Harley Horning and Matt Rempel all managed to collect singles. With a fi nal score of 12–0, goalie Skylar Szocs recorded his first shutout for the King Miners in this tournament. Saturday morning’s contest featured a significantly different outcome, with the King Miners losing 3–2 to the Lake Manitoba Eagles, with Hale and Horning bringing home a pair of goals for their team. On Saturday night, it was do or die time as the King Miners had to pull off a win against the Landmark Blues to advance. The Thompson team eventually came away with a decisive 8–0 victory, with

Hale leading the way with two goals, and players like Gurniak, Mayor, Monias, Spence, Horning and Dawson Bilawka bringing up the rear with some singles. With this win, Szocs managed to pick up his second shutout of the tournament. On Sunday morning, the King Miners faced off against La Broquerie Habs in the semifinal game, which would prove to be their toughest test in this tournament. The first period ended up with neither team finding the back of the net. Brandon McKay started the scoring early in the second period before La Broquerie took a 2–1 lead late into the period. Defenceman Keegan Keough tied the game with a shot from the point with under two minutes left in the second period.

Late goals pave way for Islanders overtime victory to win midget AA league championship

Residents of Thompson as well as Lynn Lake, Norway House, Cross Lake, Lac Brochet and other surrounding communities gathered together at the C.A. Nesbitt Arena June 9 to celebrate academic excellence at University College of the North’s (UCN) fourth-annual Leslie W. Turner Memorial Traditional Powwow. This year’s event was organized by UCN’s Ininiwikiskinwamakewin Centre and designed to honour new graduates from the north’s poset-secondary institution. The festivities began with a pipe ceremony around 10 a.m. and eventually transitioned into drumming and dancing later in the afternoon. graduates received their blue stoles and UCN keepsakes, the attendees sat BYAfter IAN the GRAHAM down for a celebratory feast and evening giveaway to cap off this full day’s worth of EDITOR@THOMPSONCITIZEN.NET activities. The Cross Lake Islanders refused to lose in game four of their midget AA league playoff final series on the road against the Thompson King Miners March 16, twice coming back to tie the game before taking the series three games to one on an overtime goal about seven minutes into overtime. Armando Evans, Drayden Garrick, Morgan McKay, Dallas Muskego and Kadin Ross had the goals for the Islanders, who opened the scoring in the first before giving up three goals to Matthew Rempel, Kale Mayor and Conroy Halcrow of Thompson in the first four minutes of the second period to trail 3-1. Muskego’s goal made it a one-goal King Miners lead heading into the third period. The King Miners were less than five minutes from forcing a fifth and deciding game in the series when the Islanders tied the game. A little over a minute later, however, Drayden Jobb put Thompson back on top 4-3. But Cross Lake refused to accept defeat, and took just 22 seconds to tie the game once again on a goal by McKay, setting the stage for overtime heroics. Shots in the game were 33-25 in favour of the King Miners, who got 28 saves from Skylar Szocs, while Peter Ross stopped 21 in Cross Lake’s net to give his team the win and the league championship. The Islanders took the series lead with a 7-6 overtime victory in game three of the series in Cross Lake March 11 after having opened it with a 5-4 victory two days earlier. The King Miners won game two 5-3 on March 10.

volunteer of the year back in 2015, this past April she was in Winnipeg to accept an award at Volunteer Manitoba’s 35th Annual Volunteer Awards. After an elaborate dinner featuring other volunteers from throughout the province, Latchman eventually accepted her award from Manitoba Lt.-Gov. Janice Filmon. According to R.D. Parker Collegiate science teacher Bonny Sousa, Latchman is totally deserving of this award, which is why she nominated her for this distinction back in February 2018. “I am not sure how Esther finds the time or the smiles to get through each and every day working fulltime, supporting her children and the community the way she does,” Sousa wrote in her nomination letter. “Esther is one of the most genuine, generous human beings that I have had the privilege to meet.” Latchman was born in a farming community in Guyana, South America in 1956 and first arrived in Thompson in 1981. Throughout the subsequent 37 years, she’s made quite a name for herself by contributing to a wide spectrum of local organizations, including the Thompson Hospital Auxiliary, the Immigrant Women’s Association of Thompson, St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church and many more. However, to Latchman, volunteering means more than a way to simply kill time. During a May 31 citizenship ceremony, Latchman made a speech in front of 96 new Canadian and talked about how volunteering for different groups like the Multicultural Centre helped her better integrate into the community. “I remember I asked myself ‘Why am I volunteering?’ I enjoy it, I like to mix with different cultures, the different people and I know Thompson is my second home.” Latchman told the Thompson Citizen that she’s going to be taking a break from volunteering this upcoming summer and giving somebody else the chance to take her spot.
